Sometimes it's hard to open the door to caring.

"I hate to be empty-handed when I welcome a new neighbor.

And when I want to show someone that I care, I often accompany my words with this little loaf.

These little loaves are delicious and always well-received!

3 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
3/4 tsp. ground cloves

Insights in caring
Pumpkin Bread

I first received one of these pumpkin mini-loaves at a military chaplain spouse coffee that I attended near Ft. Jackson, SC in 2008. I have since made this recipe countless times.

Give them away warm and fresh...or freeze them to have on hand when a need suddenly arises. Share them with neighbors, friends, deployed spouses... It's a small token to encourage others and to show that you care."
